State Boards: Tennessee, Illinois and Florida

  1. 0
    Does anybody know when these three states began requiring prospective nurses to take State Boards? There is a woman that has stated she worked as a nurse in these three states and never was required to take any State exam. This would have been in the time period of 1968-ish to 1976 or so. I was under the impression that there was always a state board exam.

    Thanks.

    I am not aware. I do know my mom became a nurse in the late 70's early 80's. She had to take the test, because I remeber her saying, that on her honeymoon she was waiting for the results.

    Regarding nursing board exams: I graduated in 1968 in IL. and took the board exam. And know it was there for awhile before that.
    Hope this was helpful,
